New York dentist Eric Marshall has vision ‘to return Israeli tennis to the world map’

An International Tennis Federation Level 3 competition – the Marshall Open in honor of Ronnie Sender – was held this month at the Kiryat Shmona Tennis Center. The competition hosted 120 boys and girls up to age 18 from 25 countries.

An event such as this provides young Israeli tennis players with the opportunity to be exposed and play against players from around the world at high levels, gain experience, confidence and progress in world rankings – without the need to travel abroad.

To meet international standards for gaming, the tennis courts in the northern Israeli city have had to be refurbished at the cost of approximately NIS 100,000.
